    Greetings! My mother was Loretta Carney and I wanted to thank you for including her name in this obituary. I did get the opportunity to meet Ann and Jack in 1982. Although we did not have a continuing relationship, I was very appreciative of this meeting. They were both very receptive and loving to my family. My mother spoke highly of both of them. My daugher at that time was less than a year old and even though she doesn’t remember them, I will always cherish the memory of her meeting them. God’s Blessings!

    Ann Waldman was my grandmother. My mother was Loretta Carney. Even though I hadn’t seen my grandmother for over 45 years, I had spoken with her several times on the phone. She was the only person alive that called me “Johnny”. No matter how long and inbetween the calls were, she always knew my voice. I am and always will be a better person because of her, my Aunts and Uncles. My deepest regret will be that I didn’t take the time to go back and see her, but I know that I will see her, grandpa and my mother in the future. Grandma, I am sorry that I wasn’t closer, but you had always been in my heart. Thank you for bringing up my mother, Loretta, to be the person she was and teaching me to be the person I am.

Your smiling face and great outlook on life was very contagious . I will always admire your spunky attitude . But most of all I will always remember you for just being you.

    Helene and Family,

    I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She was such a bright spot in the day of many residents and staff at The Towers and she will be greatly missed.
